In this talk, Christophe Heintz will examine human's cooperative nature in the light of the so-called "prisoner's dilemma".

Durchschnittliche Verweildauer: 15 Minuten

Is it rational to cooperate?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It often depends on what the partners are likely to do. Economists have described social interactions as “games” in view of identifying the role of benefits and costs at stakes in the decisions. Under this description, issues arise:

  1. What type of games do people actually play in their day-to-day life? One such game is called the “prisoner's dilemma” and, if most games are of the prisoner's dilemma type, then human cooperation results from irrational choices!
  2. People, surely, don’t look at social interactions as just games (in the sense of the economists). Are they nonetheless sensitive to the costs and benefits at stake? What specifically human cognitive processes could account for our cooperative nature?
